Some very laughable stuff you got.
Carb linkage and cobbled air cleaner stud to name a couple.
First thing I’d do is put in more timing. Bump it up to 15 initial.
If that doesn’t improve it then check the fuel pump output.
Haha ya its a project thats for sure. Ok ill add some more timing and we will see how it goes.

I did just replace the plugs havent done wires yet but that is ok the list along with new belts and to tighten up that altenator braket it tends to shake a lot. The only reason have not joined a car club is because i will be moving here in a couple months and didnt want to get involved just to leave. And i have some experience just not with gas engines. I tend to stick with diesel. This is my first real gas project. As it happens i am hopfully in the next year or so gonna swap a 12 valve cummins into it. Haha but need a runing truck before then.
